1. Mid Bald Fade with Beard

This mid bald fade has a beautiful side part that is close to perfection and a lovely trimmed beard. The hair has been treated to some glossing agent or simple hair gel to make it shiny and easier to comb over to one side.

This is what we would call a low skin fade connected to the beard through some tapered sideburns. The beard itself has been trimmed to make it look pointy, removing the unwanted hairs on the neck.

4. The Twisted Top with a Very Short Beard

We absolutely love how the top of this haircut has been styled. The strands have been twisted one by one and pushed back over the crown of the head to reveal the forehead and the undercut on the sides.

10. Bowl Bald Fade with Van Dyke

A type of beard that has been getting a lot of love lately is the goatee. Of course, this is not a new trend. Goatees have been around for literally hundreds of years, but we all know that fashion is cyclical.

11. Bald Fade with Goatee and Comb Over

This fade has a very geometric taper coming down at the temples which can only be achieved with a razor. It also has a comb-over with a long top that falls carelessly in layers on the sides. Also, have you seen that rose tattoo?

12. Slick Hipster Bald Fade with Beard & Hungarian Mustache

Granted, hipsters are not quite the big stylish group they used to be a few years ago. However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t still major influencers or that they have disappeared completely. Handlebar mustaches still exist.

13. Bald Fade with a Man Bun and PRecision Cut Beard

The same goes for the notorious man bun. It may not create the same waves or spark the same heated debates as it did a few years ago, but the man bun is still alive and well. You can wear it if you have long hair. Notice the way the hair fades close to the eye, while the sideburns fade way back towards the ear.

14. Bald Fade with Short Beard and Pompadour

The pompadour was invented in the 17th century in France for a woman, Madame de Pompadour. It saw its first rise in the 50s and 60 thanks to the greasers and celebrities like Elvis and James Dean and its second rise in the 2010s.

15. The Pompadour Quiff with Declining Cheek Line Beard

As mentioned earlier, the pompadour started making a comeback at the beginning of the 2010s, slowly at first and then in full force. Now, at the end of the 2010s, it seems that everywhere you look, all the men are wearing one.

16. Slick, Textured Bald Fade with Very Short Beard

17. The Jelly Roll with a Bald Fade

25. Bald Fade with Beard and Fauxhawk

The fauxhawk has now replaced the old Mohawk, which has not been seen on a large scale since the 70s and 80s. It looks much softer and approachable, but it still sends the same message of rebelling against the system.

26. The Hard Part and Bald Fade with Large Fuzzy Beard
